Elyptic is a relatively small multimedia development / design company in Toronto. We create interactive content ranging from 2D/3D animation to server applications and website design. If you're interested in learning more about us and our work, please click through the different areas above and contact us through the Contact Us link when you're done!
Elyptic was founded in 1996 in Toronto. It was born out of a need for the industry to have high quality development produced at reasonable rates. The only options available to companies were either to spend a fortune to receive a high profile and usable product, or to spend reasonably and get only what they paid for : run-of-the-mill amateur work.
Through the years, many technologies have come and gone. We have embraced what we consider the best of these and focused on their strongpoints, rather than try to harness everything and dilute our talents. We were one of the first Toronto developers to be using Flash technology (back when it was called "Futuresplash") to produce a fun, cartoon-themed website for Central Reproductions Ltd. We have been producting 3D animations for clients since we began, as you will see in the Showcase section of our latest site revision, as well as other projects for our clients.
Please have a look at the site to get a better idea of our capabilities, including 3D animation, audio/video mixing and effects, website design and development, and Flash development.
Thank you for visiting!
Since V11.0.5 came out, some improvements were made to their template but still a lot of holes to fill. We've decided to forge ahead and create a fully Bootstrap 3.3.2 compatible template which adheres to all the design concepts BS3 has to offer. This includes Bootstrap 3.3.2, proper dropdown menus, Font Awesome 4.3.0, ADODB 5.19 and proper Pager icons.
Major updates to the CMS today!
We've implemented a flat-fee section to the invoices, allowing flat fee items such as one-time discounts, maintenance fees, domain registrations etc. These appear underneath the hourly rates, so you can clearly see how they are worked into the invoice structure.
Today we launched www.demorecommend.com! After many months of development we have finally released it into the wild.

Every client now has an interactive calendar to show updates from us. You can now see at a glance what updates occurred during a given month, week, day or right down to the hour. It's pretty impressive.
Clients are now able to log in and view their customized client pages. Currently available are the news ticker and invoices.
We upgraded the AerialCRMS™ again today by adding custom fonts to the selection, based on the actual CSS of your site. This means you'll be seeing your site-specific options right within the CMS. It's incredibly refreshing to see things the way they are intended, even with background colors. Now that's WYSIWYG.
Updated the thumbnail compression routine and found out a bit more about the processing. As it turns out, files are stuck at a 75% compression ratio, but only when resized. So, to keep resolutions high, let's not resize them after upload.
